Multiple commenters should do their homework and educate themselves before commenting on Microsoft killing off any studios. Last game studio they closed was Lionhead, in 2016. For years now they keep investing in their developers and bringing new ones to Xbox.

For comparison purposes - rival Sony, who is often brought up as the shining example of "growing talent", has closed 4 studios between 2016 and now. It's all there in the internet, so go and check it for yourself.

Activision is safe and actually has a chance to get rid of Bobby Kotick and his vile board. It's only hardcore Ponies that are having a meltdown over this acquisition.

league and dota are not even close to mmorpgs they are mobas and the defining mobas, which is a pretty poor mistake on your part :/
and world of warcraft is a very unique case, other companies have tried the monthly subscription per game thing, it doesn't work, especially when gamepass exists. the people that want it seek it out, like custom servers on games like ark.
i'm afraid you're not a gamer, you're nitpicking and biased, bye bye.

Paying monthly fees to play just one game is a huge mistake.
If the person will like to have and play 10 different games and he will have to pay 10 for each every moth then he will spend 100 monthyl for gaming.
Bad idea.
Thats no future. Money are SIN and they always was.
As soon as this world get rid of money it will be a step to the future.

So maybe CoD will be a better singleplayer game then? But that's what im not worried about anyways.

GAMIR3DH, 18 Jan 2022Microsoft will kill CoD for sure. No more fun allowed anymore.Considering HALO, Gears, Flight Sim, Sea of Thieves and Forza are some of the best multiplayer experiences out there, I highly doubt that they'll kill COD.

Anonymous, 20 Jan 2022Pretty sure COD killed COD.Really? Then why it is still the most sold game every year?
